Uruguay have won the Copa America for a record fifteenth time, beating Paraguay 3-0. Liverpool's Luis Suarez opened the scoring in the eleventh minute before Diego Forlan doubled their lead before half-time. Suarez then got an assist to his name when he created Forlan's second in the final minute. "The important thing was getting started well. With two goals in the first half, I think it was very difficult for them to come back," said the Reds striker. Suarez was also named as player of the tournament and was runner-up in the race for the Golden Boot, with four goals.
